Miami Dolphins 2018 NFL Draft: What I would do

Is Josh Rosen arrogant? Maybe. But I’ll take him in a minute. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez, File) Let’s cut right to the chase, and start with quarterbacks, because so often winning and losing begins and ends with quarterbacks. If any of the four — Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Baker Mayfield or Josh Rosen — is available, send in the card. Don’t overthink this....

Defensive lineman Vita Vea of the Washington Huskies (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images) We’re going to say the most likely scenario is the Miami Dolphins drafting linebacker Roquan Smith or Tremaine Edmunds with the 11th overall pick.

2018 NFL Draft: Miami Dolphins prepare for Round 1 surprises, snags

What are the chances the Dolphins can get Baker Mayfield? (Getty Images) The NFL Draft always seems predictable right up until the teams actually start making picks. Then it gets crazy. Highly thought of players fall, and a supposed “reach” goes early. Maybe a scandal shakes it up, like when Laremy Tunsil plummeted from potentially being the first overall pick...

Notre Dame left tackle Mike McGlinchey could be a pillar for the Dolphins.

2018 NFL Draft: Marshall QB Chase Litton a late-round option for Dolphins

Chase Litton did some impressive things at Marshall, but he’s a tough prospect to evaluate. (Getty Images) Barring an unexpected slide by one of the elite quarterbacks in next week’s NFL Draft, the Dolphins will shift into a search for someone with a less recognizable name. One of those unheralded prospects worth keeping an eye on is Marshall’s Chase Litton, a player...

What will the Dolphins do in this year’s NFL Draft? (Getty Images) Picking 11th overall is a great situation for the Dolphins in next week’s NFL Draft, regardless of who gets taken in the 10 spots ahead of them.

DeVante Parker should soon be under contract for another season. (Andres Leiva/The Post) The Miami Dolphins are likely to pick up DeVante Parker’s fifth-year option. Why?

(Getty Images) DAVIE—This is the simplest thing in the world: The Dolphins’ three choices with the No. 11 pick are stay there, trade up or trade down.

The Miami Dolphins have reported back to Davie for a voluntary round of strength training and this is the moment, with another NFL draft coming, when the team hopes to pump up all of South Florida, too.
